Question:

I am working with an NGO which focuses on uplifting people in the agriculture sector. Could you please suggest some course, which can give me deeper insights intothe development of the agriculture sector, preferably through distance learning? 

Answer:

Indira Gandhi National Open University’s (Ignou) School of Agriculture offers a six-month postgraduate certificate programme in agriculture policy to develop human resource for planning, development and implementation of national policies in agriculture. The programme, which is also offered online (www.ignouonline.ac.in/soa), covers various aspects essential for policy formulation to achieve overall economic development of the country. The curriculum addresses factors related to the agricultural development process in India, farmers’ plight, their intellectual property rights issues in cases of plant-breeding and others, and research opportunities.
